One of the most charismatic characters of Cyberpunk 2077 it is without a doubt Johnny Silverhandthe rocker dubbed and interpreted by the timeless Keanu Reeves. Despite this, the first concept of the character did not yet provide for the presence of the Canadian actor.
This is what emerges from the images released by Lea Leonowiczsenior concept artist of CD Projekt RED. As you can see for yourself from the images below, Silverhand’s concept has a very similar style to that played by Reeves, following the same rocker style: long hair, sunglasses and leather pants. Similarly, the initial character foresaw the presence of the bionic arm.
In addition to this, Leonowicz has also published some initial drafts, which show the whole evolutionary process in the creation of the good Silverhand. In all cases, the senior concept had already identified a rebellious style, changing only a few details.
This is therefore the initial concept of Johnny Silverhand before the enrollment of Keanu Reeves. What do you think of the result? Do you prefer the current character or the one initially drawn by the senior concept artist of CD Projekt RED? Before concluding, we remind you that on Uagna.it you can consult the complete guide to the game.
